Yes, this is a post about one of those order-via-a-consultant products that you see on Facebook alllll the time. (I know, I know.) But don’t close your browser window just yet! Hear me out.
I (like many of you, I’m guessing) feel like posts to purchase “Brand A” of skincare or host a party for “Brand B” of clothing fill up my Facebook feed these days. It’s overwhelming and can get pretty annoying, as far as I’m concerned (not to mention pushy). And so it’s incredibly surprising that I now find myself among those people selling a product online. (This is not something I thought would happen!)
No, I don’t love when I feel like brands are pushed on me repeatedly. However I DO love discovering new skincare and beauty products that others have had a great experience with. And so when I realized that could be my Beautycounter goal as a consultant — to simply be a resource for other women looking to add some new high-quality products to their skincare and make-up routine — I was on board.
I first tried Beautycounter products thanks to a college friend (and Beautycounter consultant) who shared some samples with me. I’d heard of the product before, and vaguely knew their mission, but kind of tuned stuff out about it. I’m so glad I gave those samples a try, because thanks to them I found a brand that I was really impressed by. I’ve tried natural skincare and beauty products before that just didn’t cut it from a performance standpoint, but this isn’t the case with Beautycounter, which I was pleasantly surprised by. They’ve been able to strike a balance between quality products that play in a more clean/natural space. Plus, they have a line of baby products that I know Kevin and I will enjoy using once our baby girl arrives. This is a brand I’d absolutely buy if it were sold in stores, but it happens to be sold via a consultant model.
Some of my top Beautycounter picks include:
- Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer: I’d been using a different BB cream that I was decently happy with, but had heard rave reviews about this product and so I gave it a try. I’m in LOVE, y’all! It’s so light (the other one i was using felt pretty heavy) but still provides nice, even coverage, and it does make your skin feel dewy and moisturized just the right amount. I use it under mineral powder, and since you just need a little bit the tube lasts a long time.
- Balancing Face Oil: I wasn’t on board with the whole “add oil to your face” philosophy until trying this stuff. I thought it would make my face feel oily, but it actually just moisturizes and replenishes your skin’s natural oils.
- Body Wash in Citrus Mimosa: This body wash’s texture and feel is wonderful, and smells amazing to boot. I’ve always been drawn to citrus-scented body washes, and so this one fits the bill for me in a big way.
- Charcoal Cleansing Bar: I’ve been on board with the whole charcoal-as-cleanser trend for a while now (I’ve even tried using it as a teeth whitener — with good success!), and this cleansing bar is wonderful. I love how bright it leaves my skin looking, and enjoy using it about once a week.
So consider this my “Hey — I’m selling Beautycounter” intro. Don’t worry — I’m not going to be clogging your Facebook feed with constant updates or anything, nor am I going to pester you to host a party (although I’m happy to help facilitate that if you’re interested, as it is a great way to save on products). I’m just putting this out there so y’all know you can come to me if you’re interested in learning more about Beautycounter or trying this brand for yourself. If you’re someone who already uses ad loves Beautycounter products and, for whatever reason, are looking for a new consultant, please let me know. I’d love to help you replenish your stock and/or try something new.
